Went to this place for late night beers. We ended up trying the sample meter which had seven different samples of different beers made in Belgium. It was an assortment of light, heavy and cherry beers and a fantastic tasting experience. Closes early even on a Saturday night. Felt rushed to finish and get out. So go early and enjoy... More

The service was poor. The staff were cold and uninterested. The food was tasteless and poor quality. I'm sorry to say that I did eat most of my meal but only through hunger from walking all day. Nice location, decent interior.

This is a p lace where you can have a quick lunch or dinner and get some taste of Belgian food in this international area of the town. Beers are good and the service is very gentle and fast

A very busy place but great for a good selection of beers. It includes also a simple but good prepared menu. Recommended

Excellent beer with super atmosphere. The food was good with fair price and perfect waiters. Thursday after works Party the huge opportunity to meet people. Everything flows to and around the Place du Luxembourg.

Did I write no romance? Well, if you like a great selection of beers and a good steak with your lover, this is your place. It's a bit loud, but the beers and the food make you feel like you're in a Belgian paradise. Or at home.

There are pubs that are inviting you to stay. It was not the case with this one. It was a bit crowded, not just because I visited immediately after office hours, but because the space was used at maximum. If walking between tables (to toilet, or going out to smoke) you definitely had to ask one or two persons to... More

My boyfriend and I visited here to end our trip to Brussels. We only stopped for drinks, so can't comment on the food, but from what I saw, it looked lovely. The staff were very attentive and friendly and the price was very reasonable. The atmosphere was great as well. Would definitely recommend.
